Health and Care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent

 

Together Were Better Listening Events PosterWe know we need to think differently, be innovative, and work together to change health and care services so that Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent can become the healthiest places to live and work.

We want to listen to you to understand what is important to you, what works well and what you think should be improved.

We will shortly be launching a 12-week public conversation across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent focussing on the following areas:

  • Simplifying the local urgent and emergency care system
  • Developing a new vision for health and care in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent that is focussed on high quality community based care centred on the citizen – this will include maternity services, mental health services and planned care (surgery and outpatients)
  • How the local health and care system can embrace and fully utilise new technology and ensure the buildings we deliver services from are fit for purpose
  • Reviewing the use and function of the community hospitals in South Staffordshire
  • Exploring what ‘integration of health and care services’ really means for local people
  • Identifying additional priorities that will deliver clinical and financial stability.
